Default New Volvo dude. Can someone tell me more about my car?

I just bought a 1998 Volvo V70 GLT AWD 2.4 Turbo. I just wanted to know more about my car. Is this wagon a sleeper? Does it have power or is it slow? If anybody has any other information please share. Thanks

Volvo has a rich tradition of using "station wagons" for racing. It's an aerodynamic shape.....relatively.

Is it a sleeper? You should know that by know if you own one. They tend to be faster than people think. As with any old car, if you abuse it, it will explode. Euro cars require maintenance more than Jap cars. Keep $500 set aside for unexpected repairs. It's the price of exclusivity.
